NORTH JACKSON, Ohio (WYTV) – Motor-heads from across the Valley converged in North Jackson to check out some great cars, all while supporting a great cause.
The First Federated Church hosted the 4th Annual Car Show Sunday, which benefited the church’s food pantry, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard.
Vehicles of every type from classic and antique cars to custom vans and motorcycles competed for the Best in Show prize. And though the event was nothing but positive vibes, the issue of hunger here in the Valley is a real one.
“Half of our clients are senior citizens and children. So, we can see that with the pressure senior citizens have on prescription medicines, how expensive they are, and the children from families, that perhaps the parents are unemployed or under-employed. There just isn’t enough money to go around. We help fill that gap,” said First Federated Church Pastor Jack Acri.
The food pantry is open the second and fourth Saturday every month from 10 a.m. to noon. Current identification is required.
Volunteers distribute more than 30,000 pounds of food annually.
